  1. “Our experience working with Clay Clark and his team has been nothing short of amazing. When our team first met Clay, I expressed that if we were able to move the needle and get results, we would be working together for a very long time. Clay and his team listened to our problems and custom built a program specifically for us. So far this season, we have experienced a 42% increase in corporate sponsorship sales, a 10% increase in season ticket sales and over a 103% increase in group tickets sales! We have also had a 21% increase in people actually attending the games thus resulting in a 27% increase in concession and novelty sales. Our program focused on search engine optimization, an increased social media presence, targeted online ads, digital retargeting ads, and the implementation of the Dream 100 system. Beyond that, Clay’s team redesigned our website making it more visually appealing and user friendly for our online visitors by creating a dynamic visual experience. Our slogan for Tulsa Oilers hockey is ‘Feel The Boom’, thanks Clay for giving us that BOOM!”

  1. “You certainly were the on-site leader that we needed for this calling campaign. By watching you work with these students and seeing the result, I became reassured that hiring you to do exactly what you did was the right thing to do. Your team brought in over $120K in gifts and pledges, which may be an all-time ORU phonathon record! But I’ll have more for you later. I smile to think how funny you were and what a GREAT job you did for us. Again, thanks for everything….and don’t drink too much Red Bull!”

Music I have a successful I’m, not that nice porsche.

For my lady by the name of dorothy overall, the oklahoma district director for the small business administration, she says:congratulations.

You’ve been selected as a2007 oklahoma sb, a young entrepreneur of the year on behalf of the top business coach us small business administration. Sba I wish to express our appreciation for your support of small business and for your contribution to the economy of this state. In recognition of your achievement, awards luncheon will be held on may 22nd 2007 at rose state college in midwest city oklahoma to lunch in a small business development center new company luncheon tickets have been reserved for you and a guest. It’s really interesting because when you get up there to give your speech-and you talk about-and they want to know how you do it, what you do now, they don’t want people in and say hello to everybody and how you doing, and in kind of be thank you for everybody who helped specifically. What did you do to build a dj company and make it successful? So I was talking to ryan on the way here to the to the show. Today, ryan is thinking about maybe moving to tulsa to come work with the team, and you were asking me you you looked up with the average income was of a dog trainer write. The average top business coach income of a dog trainer was a thousand a year or 50000 years. A that’s, that’s the top business coach average right. That’s the act of the average dog trainers making across the country now and I and I applaud him for doing the research on I was going to get it. He did the research on it. I want to doozy’s I want to pull up the stats here today for tip top k-9 owasso movies are so fun and the first week he opened up he brought in $1,166 if he did that for 52 weeks a year that would be more than the national average. That’s week, one week, one for the first training session.

Remember so he got he brought in $2 at the end of what is one two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight nine now he is $15,472 in, but according to my last meeting, is punching in the show and in the notes tonight he should be a $57,000 of the of booked business in the way it works, a dog training issue, a great you do a $1 training session, which is a dollar in. If they like the training session, then what you do is you say which package do you want? They decide and the air ticket z is about $1,500. So if you see her on his top business coach conversion percentage here he’s closing on some weeks a hundred percent some week 63 some weeks 80%. But the thing is this:guy, after paying the franchise fee. So make sure you see this year he’s going to bring in relief. 58000 * .85 is what he gets to keep he’s going to keep $49,300 in his first 11 weeks and visit. That happens to be more than the average. That’s what that is. That’s the year, 11 weeks you beat the average of the year i, don’t think a lot of people, except for our listeners are curious about how they do it. Why is that? Why are some people to see our listeners are curious, but why you think the average person is not curious? Don’t even think that way. They don’t even that. That’s not even in their bandwidth and thought they don’t think that way.

They don’t think my feelings are curious. Why people don’t look at a car and go I’m wondering why it runs i, wonder what’s happening any that hood I wonder what’s going on with this? This is what I missed today. As we talked about deacon leave the number one character attribute. You have to have to tip to begin the path of entrepreneurship, not saying that the only character trait to have, but you have to have a disproportionately high amount of curiosity, agree with them. If you have to agree with that completely and I think it’s a top business coach curious mind and want to know one another. No, so this is what happened in 2007 i. Remember this. My wife looks at me and she was very curious about how I could be a good husband.

Cuz I currently was not being one was being a good dad, I would say, and a good husband I was like i. Don’t need some serious epidemic of of injuries that would have occurred to your team for you to get any playing time at all. To that talk, and you schedule a lot of time to write that speech. Do you think you could schedule like 30 minutes with your daughter and I’m like there is a choice, your cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon? Little boy will be together. That was painful, but it’s so true name of carrie fisher. If you’re listening, if you don’t carrie, fisher, cinnamon email say to clark and doctors here bragging on you, mr. Terry fisher fisher and I waited till my son to go blind for my son was born blind, so I had to get the award get the ridicule, didn’t have no type of improvement. All the optometrist dr. Groves he’s the one who really laid into meeting and then I swear he’s like so how he calls he said you need to go here, you’d, be here at work and I said:i can I’m in a meeting you at son I’m, going to tell your wife that your son is blind and I’m not going to do it without you top business coach being here so i. Don’t care what you having schedule! I need to be careful.

I hate their met with dr. Grows like a total jerk, he’s really kind of person, very nice guy, but he’s just being truthful with me, I’m, going to tell your wife your son’s blind by yourself by yourself with terry and terry, says mr clark for you to have a good relationship with your kids. It requires some scheduling purposeful time with it distracted time. Not you doing sales calls, while you’re with them and actually being with them and I thought. Well what a baby and I looked like his great daughters, brace, accessible guy and I thought. You know that makes sense, he’s a schedule time for the business. Why am I not scheduled time for the number one business which is the family? You know why am I not doing that and so begins, the curiosity that wasn’t there for the first seven years of my marriage at all, not curious, but how could it all be a decent but I never even asked the question. Terry was a top business coach supernatural, the awesome, father, yeah i, think so too. I think we just take it for granted. It’s natural! It’s it’s over that person. Obviously! Well you look at good dna i, like what you said about the workout guy. Yes, 7 days a week days a week, so what I’m going to do is I’m going to read you some success stories and I’m going to tell you that the up to the thrive nation, how it happened?
